Who will replace Bob Brenly?

Patrick Mooney on the Cubs' search for a new color man:

With interviews scheduled to begin this week, sources have identified five contenders for the job: Dan Plesac; Rick Sutcliffe; Eric Karros; Todd Hollandsworth; and Gary Matthews.

Great list. It's so rare you get to hear the ex-jock perspective.

Unfortunately for Cub fans, the best man for the job doesn't seem interested:

Former Cubs outfielder Doug Glanville, an ESPN studio analyst, also said the job intrigued him.

"I had a wonderful experience in my time in Chicago, which always included a positive relationship with the fans and the media," Glanville said. "I am grateful that the support persists, as seen in all these comments that I would be a good fit for this amazing opportunity. Clearly in this industry, there is a lot of change, a lot of uncertainty. At this time, I am with ESPN, which I am thoroughly enjoying and hopefully I’m representing Chicago well in the process."

I interpret that to mean, "ESPN pays me well and I don't have to go to Cincinnati three times a year." It's the smart move; Tessio Glanville was always smarter.
